Gardener's Workshop
Gardeners’ Workshop I


Pottery is the perfect art form for all you earth-loving gardeners. What could be better than designing and making something from "clean" mud that becomes permanent and useful when fired (baked) in a kiln (oven)?

This beginner workshop will concentrate on two different hand-building pottery techniques: pinch pots and dowel formed cylinder pots. These techniques can easily be performed at home without the need for a potter’s wheel. Each participant will create a minimum of two small terracotta “herb” pots that will then be fired.

Time: 2.5 hours

Date: What day is convenient for you?

Registration fee: $20 plus $15 materials fee

Who: Beginners welcome--no previous experience necessary

Workshop size: Maximum of 4 participants
